comment What happened to multi-focal lenses?
That's my understanding, too. A zoom lens doesn't work well with a rangefinder. If you're using a what-you-see-is-what-you-get system like with a mirror or EVF, then a zoom lens is more flexible.

comment Is Adobe Photoshop worth the money?
I would add another item to your bullet list. If you find yourself doing similar items to each image, Photoshop's actions can be a massive time saver. I have a set of actions I created that apply noise reduction, crop, adjust local contrast, and sharpen. I have various actions depending on which steps I want to perform and which I don't. For example, not all batches will need noise reduction. Depending on the output (web gallery for display, web gallery for ordering, 4x6 proof prints), I'll resize differently. Based on the size and medium (screen or print), I'll sharpen differently.

What are your intended subjects? That will play a big part in what to recommend.

comment What GPS would you recommend for geo-tagging?
Lots of recommendations. I would do an internet search for issues with Garmin and updates before buying one if I were you. Garmin bricked my GPS with an update and then told me it was my fault. Their offer? I could exchange my bricked unit for a refurbished one, and end up paying $70 more than a brand new one from Amazon. I won't give them business anymore. Turns out, this issue has happened to several people. Do a search, and buy a Garmin only with your eyes open.

comment What's better image quality; full frame with Canon 400mm 5.6L plus 1.4 extender, OR, cropped frame with same lens?
To be more precise,I should have specified pixel density. Whatever results in more pixels per duck will give better resolution. When limited by focal length, I have gotten better bird photos from a rebel over 5D.

comment Low light pixel aggregation
The keyword, as Matt pointed out, is binning. "Pixel binning" and "signal to noise" are good phrases to use for searching. :)
